|Sometimes, the focus on equipment and technology masks the human face of materials handling. So, it is refreshing to be able to report on a number of personal aspects of the industry this week.
Our exclusive report on the impact of the current European heatwave details some measures fleet managers should adopt - including additional care for drivers.
We report on a number of awards this week, with achievements in training and in logistics highlighted. And we show that even rivals can have fun together in our coverage of the inaugural FLTA-BITA Golf Day.
As an aside, Happy New Financial Year to those readers whose business calendars turned over this week. We hope that your assets exceed your liabilities and that the year ahead is a profitable one.
